Attorney Profile

As an attorney at The Beasley Firm, LLC, Heidi G. Villari represents people in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, who have suffered due to a personal injury, wrongful death and medical malpractice. Her aggressive approach to holding people accountable for their wrongdoing has resulted in a number of favorable outcomes for clients.

Prior to the advocacy she does for clients today, Ms. Villari was an attorney who defended people facing personal injury lawsuits. She uses that experience when advocating for clients, where she understands the tactics at play and how to obtain compensation. To date, Ms. Villari has obtained up to $80 million in settlement and awards.

One of Ms. Villari’s most notable cases involved a client who was injured in a helicopter crash. Ms. Villari took the case to trial, that resulted in an $8 million award. In another case, she negotiated a $20 million settlement on behalf of two twin babies who suffered a severe hypoxic injury at 20 weeks gestation and a $9.75 million dollar settlement involving a man who suffered complete blindness following surgery.   She also recovered a $2million dollar settlement for parents whose infant died due to a negligent labor and delivery. These are just a few of the many seven-figure awards she has obtained. For successes like these, she holds an Avvo “Excellent” rating.

In 1993, Ms. Villari earned a Bachelor of Arts in English from Villanova University. She then received a Juris Doctor in 1998 from the Widener University Commonwealth Law School. While in law school, she took part in moot court competitions.

Today, she is a member of the Pennsylvania Association for Justice, the Pennsylvania Bar Association, the Philadelphia Bar Association and the Justinian Society.   She is a Board Member of the Pennsylvania Trial Lawyers Association.

Outside her practice, Ms. Villari serves as a judge pro tempore and teaches fellow attorneys through continuing education courses. She also enjoys spending time with her son and exercising.
